M3A2 Logging Out

Using Gnome 3.6, installed using LiveCD, when I choose to log out, it takes 2-3 tries before it actually log me out. Those first few tries go through the motion but returns to the desktop screen, and by the third try it may switch to the login screen.

Has anyone else seen this happen? I'll check bugzilla before filing a bug report.

I also created a new user and the same thing happens with the new user.

I did do a tail command for the auth.log file, hopefully something is in it to show what is happening.

[root@localhost ~]# tail /var/log/auth.log
Nov 12 18:30:21 localhost systemd-logind[716]: New session 10 of user saptech.
Nov 12 18:30:21 localhost gdm-password][4648]: pam_tcb(gdm-password:session): Session opened for saptech by saptech(uid=0)

Nov 12 18:30:51 localhost su: pam_tcb(su-l:session): Session opened for root by saptech(uid=500)
[root@localhost ~]#
Any ideas/suggestions?
